Gatorland's "Trainer For A Day" program

Guest-trainer Derrill Rothermich of El Paso, Tx., handles a python, with park trainer Chris Costa (right), as he participates in Gatorland's "Trainer For A Day" program. The tour gives guests a behind-the-scenes look and up-close interactions with the park's famed alligators and other animals. The guest-training program is the type of backstage activity in the tourism and theme park industry that could be affected by recent legislation and court rulings regarding minors and liability waivers.
